Help MATRIX Give Back to Charity in 2016
In the spirit of the holidays, we always like to take this time of year to reflect on how we have given back at MATRIX and how we plan to give more next year. Serving our community is a big part of our culture and never fails to bring us closer together as a team.
This year our offices got a little more creative with how we chose to give back. We did “jeans drives” where our employees could pay to wear jeans for a month and then donated that money to local charities. We participated in 5k races that supported causes such as Crohn’s & Colitis. We collected donation items for The Salvation Army Angel Tree and local humane societies. We sponsored golf tournaments and fundraisers to support organizations like Meals on Wheels. We volunteered our time to decorate turkeys with children in the hospital at Thanksgiving.
Now we’re planning for next year and looking for organizations to partner with across our office locations. So, we want to know – which charity are you most passionate about? Tell us your stories of charities you’ve enjoyed working with to help us decide!
Between now and January 8th, share your pictures and stories of how you give back by tagging us on Facebook, posting to our Facebook page, or tweeting with the hashtag #helpgiveback. After reviewing your recommendations, we will select our favorite story and donate $500 to that selected charity. We will also highlight the winner along with other submitted stories on our blog early next year. If you aren’t on social media, simply email us your photo and story here.
We hope you join us in the spirit of giving this season – happy holidays!
